Iskcon Bangalore Group | 28.12.2011 — It is not an unknown fact that even though our country has made tremendous progress in technology and sophistication in the past two decades, the fundamental quality of life and the levels of basic satisfaction have hit the rock bottom. We keep hearing and reading about highly educated and successful professionals committing suicide, or indulging in unethical actions, or engaging in illegal transactions, or exhibiting unacceptable levels of indiscretion, etc. It is a consensus among all global leaders now that educational institutions cannot afford to focus only on academics anymore but should focus equally, if not more, on the all-round development of every student.
It is with the intention of educating children not only in academics but also in the most fundamental sciences of life, we engaged Values Plus to impart values/life skills education to our students. This would equip our students to excel in their academics as well as their career later on in their lives. In corporate companies it is only the well-rounded professionals with high emotional and spiritual intelligence who succeed than the purely technically-capable ones.
Values Plus is a program run by ISKCON, Bangalore to impart value education to students in schools. The primary objective of Values Plus is to transform children into refined, cultured and civilized gentle persons having a strong value system as the basis of all the activities they perform. The program aims at inculcating in children a responsibility towards society at large by helping them grow into a conscientious adult who puts humanity before the self.
The intention of Values Plus is to bring about an all-round development of each child by enhancing his/her physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.
The Values Plus course aims at imparting value education to school students using various interactive pedagogical techniques. Each session is filled with interactive sessions, group exercises, games, practical case studies, easy-to-apply-tips and practical ideas to mould children into beautiful, dynamic and principled leaders of tomorrow.
